Polyglass Project Profile: La Gorce Palace Condos

November 22, 2016 at 6:22 p.m.

The luxury condominiums are now protected by a Polyglass self-adhered modified bitumen roofing system.

The La Gorce Palace Condos, with its distinct dark blue glass tower, is a high-end residential property located in Miami Beach, Florida. Designed by Schapiro Associates, the 34-story luxury condominiums were built in 1996 on prestigious Collins Avenue overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

After 20 years protecting the building form the harsh Miami heat, sun and weather, La Gorce Palace Condominium Association learned that they would need to replace the roof. They selected roofing contractor Building Unlimited, Inc. (since acquired by Miami, Florida-based Isaacs Roofing) to tear off and reroof the 12,000 square foot roof.

The challenge of getting materials on the roof

An international tourist destination, Collins Avenue offers beautiful oceanfront hotels, popular white sand beaches and world-renowned dining and shopping. Interfering with street and pedestrian traffic was not an option with this project. As a result, materials were transported to and from the roof in freight elevators.

Modified Bitumen roofing system installation

The previous roofing system was removed down to the structural concrete deck. The new Polyglass self-adhered modified bitumen roofing system consisted of two layers of Elastoflex® SA V SBS membrane and Polyflex® SA P granulated cap sheet. The three-ply roofing system featuring Polyglass’ patented ADESO® Self-Adhered Technology was installed over tapered polyisocyanurate insulation.

The Polyglass roofing system was selected based on project conditions and the building owner requirements. Critical project specifications included the following:

  • Wind design pressure requirements for a high-rise building in a hurricane zone
  • Minimal equipment for installation
  • Speed of installation
  • Reduced waste
  • Durable multi-ply system backed by Polyglass’ 20-year roofing system warranty

Products used include Polyflex SA P and Elastoflex SA V, both featuring ADESO self-adhered technology. For more information visit www.polyglass.us https://rooferscoffeeshop.com/rcs.php?gaplg=786
